WOMEN'S & CHILDREN'S
ADVANCING THE HEALTH CARE NEEDS OF WOMEN & CHILDREN
While Jupiter Medical Center gets top marks for obstetrics, we know that
women’s health care needs last a lifetime. That is why we’re
reimagining the delivery of health care for women to provide integrated,
comprehensive health and wellness services across all life stages.
We also recognize that children aren’t simply small adults; they
have unique medical needs that we believe are best answered with a forward-thinking
approach to care. In 2013, we partnered with the Nicklaus Children’s
Hospital (formerly Miami Children’s Hospital) to give patients in
our community access to additional sources of premier pediatric care.
Now it’s time to expand that access closer to home by opening a
12-bed Inpatient De George Pediatric Unit, including two pediatric surgical
suites, at Jupiter Medical Center.
To fulfill our vision, we’re embarking on a bold $300 million comprehensive
campaign. This includes a $22 million goal to expand access to the crucial
obstetric/gynecologic services women need to retain their health and to
age well, and create a state-of-the-art 12-bed Inpatient De George Pediatric
Unit to give children in our region the specialized, attentive care they
need and deserve. By investing together, your generous support can help
us answer even the most complex needs of women, infants and children with
worldclass, family-centered medical services and programs designed to
provide a continuum of care throughout their lives.
“As women’s and children’s health care providers and
advocates, we envision a system of coordinated care that provides support
specifically for women and families throughout all of the stages of their

YOUR HEALTH, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR HOSPITAL
Jupiter Medical Center honored its long-standing commitment to family health
with the opening of the Florence A. De George Children’s and Women’s
Services obstetrics unit and the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center. With
the continued generosity of our donors, our goal is to further expand
our capabilities so that patients have access to the most advanced obstetric/gynecologic,
neonatal and pediatric care possible.
For women, this means enhancing the ability of our multi-disciplinary team
to provide leading-edge treatment options. For children, it means expanding
our ability to provide advanced treatment, including earning Level II
neonatal intensive care designation to give premature and sick babies
more extensive care and support, and the creation of the new 12-bed Inpatient
De George Pediatric Unit in partnership with Nicklaus Children’s
Hospital and two pediatric surgical suites.
